To many people, enclosed mobility scooters act as a car – it’s a replacement for a vehicle they are now not able – or were never able – to drive. This means many users are looking for a mobility scooters for adults that can at least mimic a car in a certain way, if at a lower level. You might need your electric wheelchair scooter to cope with debris that could fly in your face, being stuck in the unexpected rainstorm, wind that makes it hard to see where you’re going, cold weather that makes you uncomfortable after being outdoors for a short while, or the sun baking down on you. 

In these scenarios, an either semi or fully enclosed motorized scooter makes sense. 

There isn’t a huge selection of enclosed mobility scooters available on the US market, so if you cannot find a model you like, remember, you can always add mobility equipment such as a mini canopy to most scooters, by means of the mobility scooter universal hitch. 

Some of these medical scooter models are closer to small electric cars than a handicap scooter, as this is where handicap scooters and mini cars overlap.

We sell both 3-wheel and 4-wheel canopy & enclosed mobility scooters – both types of are listed below. Choose a 3 wheel model if you prefer maneuverability in tight corners and small turning radius over extra stability.  Choose a 4 wheel mobile scooter if you prefer extra stability over maneuverability and tight turning. With 4 wheels you are always more stable than with 3.

What are the different kinds of canopy/enclosed mobility scooters for sale near me available on the market?

  • Windscreen + Hard Canopy top

    Usually a plexiglass front which arches over you and is opaque in its roof section. Held up by horizontal steel brackets projecting from behind the driver’s seat. 
    This will shield you from rain, wind and debris that’s heading straight at you. It will not help in cases where these are coming from the sides. Cold protection is semi effective – you are still exposed on the sides.
    Your hands controlling the throttle of the scooter will largely be protected, and that’s an important plus. Fair sun shielding.

  1. Windscreen + Hard Canopy top + soft sides

    Seen on Afiscooters, this is an upgrade to the Windscreen + Hard Canopy top setup with the addition of a one-piece clear plastic which is designed to sit on either side of the scooter providing soft doors.
    This will shield you from rain, wind and debris that’s heading in any direction. Cold protection is effective – you are protected on the sides.
    This might prove to create a greenhouse effect in the summer, and if so you can easily remove the rain sides and benefit from the canopy’s sun shielding.

  2. Full roof, no doors

    This is where the scooter has a fully integrated roof and windscreen – not an add-on, but an integral part of the vehicle. However, these models stop short at doors.
    This will shield you from rain, wind and debris that’s heading straight at you, or a little to the side. It will not help in cases where these are coming at a direct right angle. Cold protection is semi effective – you are still exposed on the sides.
    Your hands controlling the throttle of the scooter will largely be protected, and that’s an important plus. Good sun shielding.

  3. Fully enclosed with doors

    Here your scooter has a fully integrated roof, as well as doors. Doors may be removable to account for different weather situations.
    This will shield you from rain, wind and debris that’s heading in any direction. Cold protection is effective – you are protected on the sides. 

  4. Add-on canopy

    As mentioned above, there are also add-on canopies available. These do not offer as much protection, but their advantage is that they can work as an addition to any mobility scooter which has a rear universal hitch (most do).
    They will only cover the area directly behind, on top and a little to the side, of the scooter user
    These come in standard, side vented and plastic encased variants.

What kind of weather can canopy/enclosed mobility scooters be used in?

A canopy/enclosed mobility scooter is not an electric scooter and should not be taken as a free pass to be operated in all kinds of conditions. Besides the different configurations available and the protection they are intended to offer, here are a few points to bear in mind.


Most enclosed mobility scooters are not meant to be taken out in the rain as a first option. Yes, they may be double insulated to prevent electric shocks and this can be relied upon in case you are unintentionally caught in rain, but regularly using your scooter in the rain may damage your scooter. Contact us if in doubt about a model. This applies to canopy scooters too. The advantage of canopy models is that if you get caught in the rain, you stay dry.

Snow & Ice 

We cannot take any responsibility for taking your scooter on snow and ice. We advise against it. This applies to canopy scooters too.


Canopy/enclosed are great against the piercing wind and this is where they really shine. Do note, however, that if you live in an area where the winds are particularly strong, an enclosed scooter – with its extra surface area acting like a ship’s sails – might increase the chance of your scooter blowing over. A professional should be consulted in these cases.


The main protection from the sun will come from your canopies overhead section, which is opaque.
Your windscreen might magnify the sun’s rays, and if you feel this is happening, we recommend purchasing a tinting kit, similar to what is sold for automobile windows and windscreens. These stick onto your windscreen providing sun relief. Please contact us for further details on this.

Fully enclosed scooters can actually increase the heat you experience under intense sunlight. We recommend removing sides and doors where possible during warm weather.
